For the last couple of weeks (and a few weeks to come), our dining area has been a construction zone, which means the table and chairs are, well, not in the dining area. After a few days of stumbling over hastily and awkwardly stowed chairs, I saw an opportunity to make this a legitimate furniture shuffle (as I am wont to do this time of year; see here). And since, as I describe here, the kitchen table gets most of its use as my desk, I decided to make it my actual desk.
It’s the perfect size for number crunching and book stacking, really. The sewing table is tucked in the dining room nook (just barely out of the construction zone), where it’s now a lovely console/buffet table.
And, finally, the bedside table that was, embarrassingly, acting as the dining room console table is now a bedside table. (Because, really, drawers are a must for a bedside table.) And the bed got a little makeover with organic slate-colored sheets and a tucked-in coverlet to sharpen up the look. (Why haven’t I been tucking in the coverlet all along?)
So what about that construction zone? Daniel is building us a proper dining table (the plan is to seat eight) from the wood he has painstakingly salvaged from shipping pallets. More on that soon!
